Deck the halls .... with lead UPDATE: two dead in LR, one in Stuttgart

On a slow news morning — only the report of a homicide in the 12000 block of Stagecoach Road with a SWAT callout in local headlines — I was drawn to this report on KTHV:

Local gun dealers reported the same spike in gun sales experienced nationwide on Black Friday. A single-day record 200,000 background checks were processed Friday and one local dealer reported sales seven times the normal level.

Peace on earth.

UPDATE: Police now say the call on Stagecoach was a murder/suicide in the Knollwood mobile home park.

IN OTHER GUN DEATHS: State Police say Charles Lindel Ice, 39, was fatally shot Sunday afternoon in Stuttgart. He'd been in a fight with another man. Morgan McDonald, 30, has been charged with first-degree murder, State Police said.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
